Financial targets

Aegon is focused on return on equity as one of its key performance indicators and management is committed to delivering attractive returns to shareholders.

The company targets a group return on equity of 10% by 2018 supported by:

  • Reducing annual operating expenses by EUR 200 million by the end of 2018
  • Additional investments in digital capabilities and expertise of EUR 50 million per annum above the current level to further support the organic growth of the business
  • Aligning accounting policies with inforce management, specifically related to UK deferred acquisition costs and accounting for reinsurance contracts as part of business exits. The retrospective adoption of these accounting changes as of January 1, 2016, is expected to
    - decrease shareholders' equity by EUR 1.3 billion
    - increase underlying earnings before tax by approximately EUR 20 million in 2016
